Default /etc/ppp settings for Earthlink

I am trying to setup an old box with a Zoom 2920 pci hardware modem.
It is going into an airplane hanger that only has a phone line.
My dmesg finds the modem and assigns it com3

I looked at the OpenBSD networking FAQ and am putting most of my effort in ppp rather than pppd.



My ppp.conf
Quote:
default:
set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
set device /dev/cua03
set speed 115200
set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \"\" AT OK-AT-OK ATE1Q0 OK \\
dATDT\\T TIMEOUT 40 CONNECT"
allow user flyer

Earthlink:
set phone 5944062
set login
set authname *********@earthlink.net
set authkey *********
set timeout 120
set ifaddr 10.0.0.1/0 10.0.0.2/0 255.255.255.0 0.0.0.0
add default HISADDR
enable dns
I also added the following chat script when ppp Earthlink >dial indicated the chatscript failed

My Chatscript:
Quote:
ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' '' ATZ OK ATDT*70,5944062
CONNECT ''
'' ''
'' ''
Userid:--Userid: *******@earthlink.net
assword?--assword? *********
Again the ppp Earthlink > dial says the chatscript failed.

I'm trying to make this easy for others to use so I installed current xfce4 with xfce4-modemlights

I know that dialup modems are nearly extinct but there is no other way to connect.

I tried the guide here but it used pppd and I get the sense it is dated
and pppd is not the preferred method now days.http://openbsd-wiki.org/index.php?title=Dialup_PPP
Also tried this Absolute OpenBSD link on setting up modems (needs flash plugin to view)
http://books.google.com/books?id=wuU...p.conf&f=false
I recall that earthlink required PAP/CHAP and previously had to set the DNS name servers manually.

Anyone using earthlink dialup in openbsd can share their basic ppp setup?

Try surrounding the name and password with single quotes.

Also use "add! default HISADDR" to override a possible existing default route.

After several hours I realized I had the phone pluged into the wrong port on the modem. Thanks for the responses
